5 Top Routine House Cleaning Tips In 2019

The year is well underway, and most of us are back in the swing of things. It also means that it will be getting more difficult to keep up with the regular cleaning needs of our homes. Between making sure everyone is fed, prepared for school or work, and trying to get everything else done, there’s scarcely time for any regular cleaning. Fret not! The pros at Simply Spotless are ready to come to your rescue with 5 house cleaning tips. Keep reading for a few tips that will help you create a routine for keeping your home clean and preventing messes from piling up.

Tip #1: Counter Chaos By Wiping Your Countertops

The simplest way to nip countertop messiness in the bud is by doing a quick wipe down of each surface with each use. A damp cloth and an ammonia-based detergent or lemon and water spritzer should do the trick. This helps to prevent sticky stains from accumulating.

Tip #2: Soak Your Oven In A Homemade Cleaning Paste Overnight

We all know how tough oven grease can be to clean. Make a paste with bicarbonate of soda, water and a dash of vinegar. Then spread it across the inside of your oven. Leave it for a few hours or overnight. All that will be left to wipe off in the morning is the broken down grease particles.

Tip #3: Do Some Regular Cleaning On Your Toilet

Get into the habit of pouring toilet cleaner along the edge of the toilet bowl once a day. Every time you flush, the detergent will get to work, and your bathroom will smell fresh too.

Tip #4: Pack The Dishes Out Of Sight

Your home automatically looks neater if your dishes are packed away. Teach each person that you live with to pack  dirty dishes straight into the dishwasher. This will make it easier for the person on dish duty when it’s time to clean them up.

Bonus tip: Make washing dishes a daily task. This way it’ll be simpler to manage and less likely to morph into a monstrous mess.

Tip #5: Raid The Pantry For DIY Cleaning Supply Ingredients

Fighting dirt is easier when you know what to use to clean up messes. Especially when you’re out of store-bought cleaning products. Keep some soda water, vinegar, bicarbonate of soda powder and citrus fruit (especially lemon) handy. That way, you’ll always be good to go.
